I missed the first 10 minutes of this show featuring pets impacted by Katrina.....but the remaining part I saw was very powerful! How amazing that some New Orleans residents forced to leave their dogs behind had not been reunited with them for a year or more. It was heartwarming to see dogs reconnected with owners…..through much hard work, red tape and legal efforts. But absolutely tragic that some owners could not get their dogs back b/c the new families that took in abandoned pets refused to return them. What kind of meanspirited, thoughtless, cruel people would not return a dog to their rightful owner?! So sad and unnecessary. The man who owned JJ repeatedly attempted to have his dog returned to him numerous times. Needless to say, the outcome was very disappointing and not fair for anyone to go through.
